If you don’t have an OFFICIAL LineageOS 15.1 Download available for your device in the list then you can find out an Android Oreo or Android Nougat custom ROM for your device from one of the below list:
UNOFFICIAL LineageOS 15 Android Oreo Downloads list
AOSP Android Oreo Downloads list
Resurrection Remix Oreo Download list
AICP Oreo Download list
crDroid Oreo Download list

If your device is not there in any of the Oreo ROMs list then you can have a look on the following Nougat ROMs list for instance:

What is the difference between an UNOFFICIAL LineageOS and an OFFICIAL LineageOS ?

Well, this is an important part to understand if you are installing a LineageOS 15.1 ROM build to your device; which I think many or most of the new users don’t understand it pretty well.

There is a huge difference in an UNOFFICIAL and OFFICIAL LineageOS 15.1 update available for a device. The evidence will be more clear to you when you compare the UNOFFICIAL LineageOS 15.1 list and this list of OFFICIALLY supported LineageOS 15.1 Downloads.

What you see is, the availability of UNOFFICIAL LineageOS 15.1 updates is more but the OFFICIAL LineageOS 15.1 list is much less in number. The reason being the restrictions that applies to certify a build for OFFICIAL LineageOS 15.1 update for a particular device. See the below table to understand things with more clarity.

 

Some of the key differences between an UNOFFICIAL LineageOS 15.1 and an OFFICIAL LineageOS 15.1 build:

UNOFFICIAL LineageOS 15.1OFFICIAL LineageOS 15.1
Built by a developer without validating the code changes of the ROM build.Built by a LineageOS maintainer (a developer, again) whose code changes go through a review process by other developers.
There is no guarantee that an UNOFFICIAL LineageOS 15.1 Oreo build will have every hardware working.An OFFICIAL LineageOS 15.1 build has to follow the LineageOS Device Support Requirements.
– Which obviously means you will have almost everything working fine on on OFFICIAL LineageOS 15.1 out-of-box.
Nobody knows when the next release is going to be available.An official LineageOS 15.1 build will have weekly NIGHTLY available for all supported devices.
There is no integrity over availability of LineageOS 15.1 for various devices.
Unofficial LineageOS 15.1 are not certain to be found at one place.
The only way to get it is to use Google or search on forums like ours (LineageOS ROMs) or xda-developers.

– For example: I have a UNOFFICIAL LineageOS 15.1 Download list maintained over a period of time to make it easier for users to know about the availability of LineageOS 15.1 for the device they own.
– Most of them are also found at XDA forums.
– Some builds will be found in Android File host or Google Drive, Mega etc.

All of the available OFFICIAL LineageOS 15.1 downloads will be available at LineageOS downloads link.
Difficult to file a BUG for an unofficial LineageOS 15.1 build.
– User have to find the developer of the ROM build and have to communicate personally or sometimes via a forum like this one or XDA forum.
User can file a JIRA ticket to the LineageOS maintainer for a BUG found by filling required data.

Of course there are many more differences but these are some of the major differences that a user must know before using an UNOFFICIAL LineageOS ROM over an OFFICIAL LineageOS build.

Add-on links required after flashing the OFFICIAL LineageOS 15.1:

As always the LineageOS 15.1 ROM does not come with pre-installed GApps (Google Applications) because of Copyright issues, so, you need an extra LineageOS 15.1 Oreo 8.1 GApps.

Also, LineageOS 15.1 does not come with built-in supersu or su binary addon for ROOT, hence you need to install su addon on LineageOS 15.1 to enable ROOT access.

In addition, almost all of the Android phones come with bootloader unlocked and a stock Android recovery. So, you may need the following too:
